Food Colloids
Biopolymers and Materials
edited by Eric Dickinson and Ton Van Vliet

Food Colloids Biopolymers and Materials describes the physical chemistry and material science underlying the formulation and behavior of multi- phase food systems and includes:

  • descriptions of new experimental techniques
  • recent food colloids research findings
  • authoritative overviews of conceptual issues

Essential new findings are presented and emphasis is placed on the interfacial and gelation properties of food proteins, and the role of colloidal and biopolymer interactions in determining the properties of emulsions, dispersions, gels and foams.
